Maia Von Lekow

Where was I when contemporary songstress Maia Von Lekow burst into the Kenyan scene? She’s awesome! Her music fuses “jazz, funk, folk & blues, sprinkled with Swahili spice”. Love it!

Maia’s based in Nairobi. Born to a Kenyan father and a German/Italian mother, her music appeals to a large variety of audiences across the world. She released an album Drift in February 2013… beautiful music. She sings about a range of contemporary social issues as well as her own reflections about (not) belonging to any one culture.

Below is a video of her debut video Jellyfish from the Drift album. Love the colour!

If you can’t get enough of her, check out more of her music and videos here.
